Reader: Scott Gessler's critics don't seem to mind voter fraud when it benefits them

Sam Levin's recent post in which Scott Gessler's office shared evidence of voter fraud brought out a supporter of the frequently attacked Colorado Secretary of State.

The reader believes those most apt to bash Gessler would be happy to look the other way if cheating gave their candidates a boost.

DrNickR writes:

After '08, when we saw outfits like ACORN registering thousands of fictitious "voters," and after decades of illegal human trafficking through our ports and borders, it really is high time to clean the system up so that one of our most important rights is upheld.

"Yes we can....make sure voter fraud rarely leaves Chicago!"
